“Having never visited Malta it was a good introduction to the Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

I thought the experience was really good ,as we waited to go in we were given a sample of the local drink .Well organised ,I was impressed at the amount of languages on offer via the headphones .The cinema was air conditioned and seats were very comfortable .
The film was very interesting and well produced ,with high calibre of persons doing the English edition!!
I enjoyed the talk which followed around the Knights of St Johns Hospital

“Overrated in the extreeme - its a film!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

The "experience" is to sit in an underground cinema for 30 minutes watching a tourist film about Malta.

Sorry but this is tourist trap of the WORST kind.

“Dull, expensive and in a dated theatre”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

We went to the Malta Experience based on TA reviews and were sadly disappointed. 15 euros each to watch a fairly dull film in a theatre in need of refurbishment. We would not pay this to go to the movies so expected a lot for the cost. We love Malta and this could have been so much better than it was. The best part was the brief but interesting short tour of the Knights of St Johns hospital included. In the afternoon we went to Malta 5D which was shorter, cheaper, interactive and covered pretty much everything shown in the film shown by The Malta Experience. We so wished we had gone to Malta 5D first. Would we go back? No and if you have children or like a more interactive experience give the Malta Experience a miss.

“Just a movie”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

It must be rather educational for people who travel without reading a guidebook beforehand or those who only have a couple of days to learn about rich Maltese history. I can't say it was anything outstanding though.
The good thing about the show is that the audio is available in many different languages. I preferred to watch it in English after hearing Russian text read by a person with a rather heavy accent, but I can't tell about its quality in other languages.
There is a nice inexpensive cafe upstairs and a souvenir shop downstairs near the theatre entrance itself.

“Wonderful overview”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

This great way to begin our day in Valletta. We got a good overview of the history and culture of the island. The day was hot and the venue was pleasant.
